{Guest Post} Purity, on the Inside

 

_MG_8436

     Most people view this as a physical thing, and it is. But there’s another aspect that we often miss, and that’s the mental, emotional part. You can save yourself for your future spouse (which is important) and dress modestly and all those good and important things.

Still what about the mental emotional side of things. If your mind isn’t clean and full of things that aren’t good, then its not pure. If your emotions have been perverted, then that’s not pure either. Without those two things being pure or at least as pure as we can get them. The rest of us can’t be pure even if we are saving ourselves for our future spouses.

 

Though pure I seem on the outside

No one can see on the inside

No one can see the hurt

Nor the thoughts

So what am I

If I’m clean on the outside

But filthy on the inside?

I would be a hypocrite

and a good one at that

For only one can see on the inside

And He can see it all

People say to wait

but if you’ve already made the choice

I would rather

that special someone to love me

for who I am on the inside

than what people see on the outside

For that is love

 

Pro 31:30 Loveliness is deceptive And prettiness is vain, A woman who fears Yahweh is to be praised.

 

It isn’t all about the outward appearances, most of it is about what’s on the inside for that will show who you truly are. For what is in you will shine through, so you might want to make sure that is clean and pure, instead of grubby and anything but clean.

  1. So true yet, I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. 16 And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. 17 As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. 18 For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature.[c] For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. 19 For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. 20 Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.

    21 So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. 22 For in my inner being I delight in Elohim’s law; 23 but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. 24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? 25 Thanks be to Yahweh who delivers me through Messiah Yahushua my King!
